I recently visited The Bell with a group of friends. It was quite late, I hadn't had a lot of sleep the night before, and was quite visibly 'flagging'. The landlady noticed that I was struggling, and kindly brought me a nice cup of tea - without any charge! Whatever other qualities a pub may have, it's the quality of the staff that really makes a difference, and one couldn't ask for better than I found here. I'll certainly be visiting this pub again soon. Highly recommended.

Sadly it wasn't open on a Saturday morning so can't comment. Don't understand why it was closed as it's near a very busy road with lots of punters around.

A decent enough Butcombe pub, being unusual for them in an inner city location rather than a country one.

Itís divided in to two, with the larger bar on the left, and a slightly smaller narrow bar to the right. The larger bar has more atmosphere, but was full on a recent Thursday evening visit so we headed for the smaller one. This has reclaimed boards on the floor, some large speakers a small LCD TV in the corner (although this was not in use) and a dart board. Wood cladding covered the lower half of the walls with painted wallpaper above. It looked rather messy behind the bar, with bags, paperwork, till rolls and other stuff being in full view rather than just a range of drinks. There is apparently a garden at the rear, although we did not investigate this.

Beers on offer were predominantly from Butcombe as you would expect, with their Bitter, Gold and Blond. The solitary guest was BBF Sunrise. Ciders were Ashton Press and Ashton Still.

Hadn't been back here for a couple of years. Was a decent 'basic' boozer back then with a friendly crowd. Not too much has changed, seems a little rougher round the edges and more threadbare than I remember. Was busy for sure.
